SKIN NEEDLING also known as micro needling

Skin needling also know at CIT therapy (collagen induction therapy) is a safe and minimally invasive procedure designed to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin fibres in your skin. The treatment employs tiny medical-grade needles to create microchannels that in turn excite the release of growth factors that lead to the synthesis of new collagen and elastin.

Once the micro-channels have been created, the electroporation technology helps to increase the permeability of the cell membrane and deliver cosmetic fusion cocktails into deeper layers of the skin for faster, more effective client results.


Skin needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment. The treatment uses tiny, sterile, medical grade microneedles to vertically pierce the skin and produce hundreds of micro channels to break up old collagen and trigger the synthesis of new collagen within your own body. 

This results in skin tightening, reduction in the depth of lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and large pores. It can also improve stretch marks and scars.

  • How long does the treatment last?
    You will have outstanding results after just one treatment of the Hydrafacial however the best results are seen with regular sessions to ensure healthy cell turnover and the removal of damaged cells and impurities. At BELLA MEDI Skin clinic we recommend 3 initial treatments at monthly intervals for optimal results to refine, refresh and hydrate the skin. For those with more serious skin concerns such as acne and sun damage a course of 6 monthly treatments is recommended. Following the initial treatment course, a Hydrafacial should be performed every 2-3 months or before any special or red-carpet event.
  • What happens after my treatment?
    For the 3-5 days following treatment we advise the following: · Do not use any skin care products containing vitamin A. · Ensure your skin remains moisturised and apply moisturiser regularly · Strict sun avoidance and daily SPF 50 · Avoid heat inducing activities such as vigorous exercise, hot showers, steam rooms for 48 hours after the treatment. · Avoid any other skin treatments such as laser, skin needling and injectables.
  • Is this treatment suitable for everyone ?
    Although the treatment is very safe and effective, the treatment cannot be performed on those who have allergies to salicylates or shellfish (though we can substitute the specific ingredient to allow a hydrafacial treatment) have had facial surgery in the last 12 months, have active facial infections/eczema/rosacea/dermatitis or herpes simplex infection (cold sores), have new sunburn in the treatment area or who are undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
